Shehroze Kashif, a young Pakistani mountaineer, has etched his name in the annals of climbing history by becoming the youngest person to summit 12 peaks above 8000 meters.
The awe-inspiring achievement was realized as he conquered Mount Dhaulagiri in Nepal, the seventh-highest peak in the world.
Karrar Haidri, Secretary of the Alpine Club of Pakistan, expressed his admiration, stating, “Shehroze’s unwavering determination, coupled with his courage and passion for mountaineering, has enabled him to achieve this incredible feat”.
At just a tender age, Shehroze has already established himself as a record-breaker. He holds two Guinness World Records for being the youngest person to climb both K2, the second-highest mountain in the world, and Broad Peak.
These notable achievements have cemented his place among the elite climbers of the world.
Prior to conquering Mount Dhaulagiri, Shehroze triumphantly scaled Mount Lhotse in Nepal, the fourth-highest peak globally.
Shehroze’s journey to become a world-class mountaineer began at a young age when he first summited Mansehra’s Makra Peak (3,885 m) at the age of 11.
